    It's an interesting read. Vaguely makes me think of the articles reflecting Pripelin's Chart with what optimal sets & reps are for every percentage and that everyone requires something different. I think this can help answer a lot of the recent "design my split" and "how often can I train chest" threads.

    That's a hell of an article. Without sounding like a zealot, it's hard to argue with Dr Squat.

    i know! lol.

    i have tried to use it over the years and it is hard to put into practice. it can get crazy complicated. i have found to simplify i will use that to decide how many times a week i may hit a body part and use that guideline in rep/set ranges. it is hard to fit it all into a 3 or 4 day a week program especially when you self regulate your workout.

    Wow, that is a really interesting article.

    Be interesting to know if it was used with success. It makes a lot of sense and I am not of the knowledge or experience to argue with it; not even close.

    EDIT: I see what you mean by being hard to implement. You would really have to either have a ton of free time, or little responsibility outside of work; especially if you have different tolerances for different body parts.
